The V6V is a quiet machine, it makes little to no noise. What this means is that the screen does not stick up as much as your average So the number of ports is definitely good, more than the average notebook of this class. The Asus A6V gave me exactly 3 hours and 1 minute of battery life with Wi-Fi on, screen at half brightness and while letting the notebook idle or use it to browse the web and do other small tasks. One thing I really like about the screen is how it sits relative to the base of the notebook. You know what was the most refreshing thing about the V6V? But for playing music I still opted for headphones or a pair of Altec X10 external speakers that I have for better sound quality.

I listen to National Public Radio talk radio during the day sometimes and the speakers were loud enough and asuw enough for listening to such talk. The V actually uses a magnet to hold the screen down when closed and this works well for preventing any papers or other miscellaneous junk sliding between the keyboard and LCD screen while you carry the notebook around in a bag.
This is awesome and a huge pat on asua back to Blhetooth. After running some 3D utilities that pushed the graphics card and processor there really was quite a bit of heat build up on the right palm rest area and you could feel it.
The screen is not the glossy glare type that so many love, but it is still nice and bright and very easy for viewing.

One thing I really like about the screen is how it sits relative to the base of the notebook. The V6V offers a full sized keyboard. But for playing music I still opted for headphones or a pair of Altec X10 external speakers that I have for better sound quality. Asus has adopted an Apple PowerBook like design by making the screen hinge down below the base.
I found a lot of jumpiness at times and it took several finger strokes to move the cursor across the screen when in SXGA resolution. The Asus V6V is marketed as a thin and light notebook.
Asus V6V Review (pics, specs)
Key feedback is decent and travel when pushing in a key is good. The Asus A6V gave me exactly 3 hours and 1 minute of battery life with Wi-Fi on, screen at half brightness and while letting the notebook idle or use it to browse the web and do other small tasks.
Half Life 2 will run well on this notebook for instance and other such 3D games will not be aaus problem. The color of the case is best described as a dark aluminum color, which gives it a very cool look.
Asus includes a free sleeve, bag, notebook case and optical mouse with the purchase of the V6V. Our review unit for the Asus V6V comes from Proportable www. Overall the performance of the V6V is excellent for its category of thin-and-light, maybe the best. The touchpad is tough to use. The V6V is a quiet machine, it makes little to no noise. There certainly are good reasons to be a fan of Asus and the V6V notebook in particular.
No AOL trial software thank goodness. I had a problem initially getting Bluetooth to work because upon receiving the notebook it appears the drivers were note completely installed for the internal bluetooth card. If you want a thin and light notebook with a good screen and excellent performance for its category, the V6V is definitely worth a look.
A note on that is you have to deal directly with Asus for replacing an LCD and it must be within days of purchase that you notice this. One really great thing is that Asus backs up its notebooks with a zero bright stuck pixel policy.
An ODM will design and manufacture a notebook, and then that notebook is branded by another company such as Asua, Sony or Apple and those companies sell and support the notebook.
One test I always make for seeing how well a screen is protected from bouetooth back is to push in on the lid to see if the screen ripples. ssus

The are no ports on the front, vv there are five LED indicator lights on the left front side that happen to be all off in this picture view larger image. We use Super Pi to get a benchmark of processor speed. That could easily be accomplished by turning off wi-fi, Bluetooth and setting the screen brightness down some. Also notice the included Windows XP Pro disc which is nice to have.
Asua big part of the service and support factor might depend on who you buy your Asus notebook from. Overall the look of the V6V is very nice. The fan and hard drive do a good drive of keeping the noise down, the fan rarely kicks in. You know what was the most refreshing thing about the V6V?
